What do you intend on using the bow for? Also, what is your prime hunting style? Everyone is a bit different. I got a bow soon as I could as I like it for hunting but the varmint rifle may be of more use across the board for a lot of players.

primarily to hunt.but to hunt while people kill you for no reason is frustrating...

No contest: Varmint ✓

You can't believe the number of kills I get just ridng from point a to point b: rabbits squirrels birds etc. And because it is 22 caliber I get a lot of perfect carcasses, feathers and pelts. But I have my shotgun handy in case of ambush or wolves. I think it is the first weapon of choice for griefers because of its head shot ability and the speed it chambers rounds. 

Consider today: my posse-mate and I were NPC-ambushed on a winding road and I didn't even realize I hadn't changed weapons. When it was over my posse mate teased me about being a terrible shot because of the number of rounds I had fired. But I'm going to venture a guess that I took out more of the bad guys than he did because even I was amazed at thep performance of that sweet little .22  and it's cheap rounds 👍

I'll wager the bow is going to be more popular when they change blips to proximity based.  The report from weapons will become a means of detection of players in the area.

I will watch with interest. The flaw, the bow has, is it's range. Against the Varmint or any rifle with range, it is basically a no contest.

If that is the case, I want to join your club cause this is one of my favorite weapons to use in the game and if it changes, I will not be happy about it.

I hope the varmint rifle stays good and accurate for hunting....but I won't be one bit sad if it sucks in PvP.  IMO, It is too OP and should not be able to compete with other rifles.  I've used it to defend myself in free roam and was astonished at how I could easily take down someone from so far away. It made me feel like I was a superstar....but I really wasn't.

They've mentioned that they would bring the accuracy of the Varmint rifle "more in line" with other rifles.  I hope that includes the acquisition time as that is one of the main reasons folks use it beyond its intended purpose.
